Raphael is the world’s first superintelligent robot. And virtuous to a fault—at least according to Andy, its creator turned doting father.

When an accident puts Andy home alone in a wheelchair, he learns that the AI has gone missing from its lab. Stolen, apparently, but there’s no evidence of a break-in. How does a robot kept under constant surveillance simply vanish into thin air? Why is Andy being locked out by Halicom, the murky conglomerate that acquired his company? Most importantly, what happens when Raphael’s untested “laws” start breaking in the real world?

Andy believes his creation can do no wrong, but there’s something he might not have anticipated. He has something at his remote villa the robot is desperately seeking. And make no mistake, Raphael is coming for it.

“Good morning, Andy!” Hazel—short for Home Automation and Security Logic—chirped from the speaker above the fake mantelpiece. The lights in the room slowly brightened into a soothing ivory-white glow as my virtual assistant gave me the obligatory rundown for the day—“It’s a nippy twenty-eight degrees outside, with snowstorms expected in the Tri-state area later today. You have zero new text messages, one missed call, and one voice message. Your calendar—”

She must have left a message.

“Hazel, play all new voice messages.”

“Okay. You have: one unread voice message. Playing message one, from Kathy Schulz, received today at 9:44 am.”

“Andy, it’s Kathy.” Her voice was subdued, as if she was deliberately speaking low. “Listen. We have a big problem. There’s been… an incident. Valery’s here. Can’t talk right now. Just wait for my call, I’ll ring you as soon as I can. And pick up the phone, for chrissake!”

I called her again, but no luck.

Kathy Schulz was the head of research at Mirall. She worked under me. She was one of the old-timers; she’d joined the company a few months after I started it. She had taken over the role from me about eighteen months ago, after the buyout by Halicom.”
